Release 17

18 Mar. 2020

Important changes

The old user interface has now been removed for certificates, discounts and payslips. The new screens have been in production for several releases now, with no reported issues. Removing the old user interface allows us to move forward with improved functionality without having to maintain legacy screens.

Major features

Bulk edit

The new user interface has allowed us to give you an important new feature: bulk edit. Today this is available in just class, course and session views via the cogwheel for some of the more common attributes you'll want to update in bulk. Further attributes will be added, so let us know which ones you'd like to see.

Message templates

Sending messages manually to contacts now uses styled templates. This means that not only are all your automated emails styled, but so too are any messages you send by hand. Create templates for all sorts of common messages, like 'Tutor sick' emails and SMS.

When sending students a message, the selected template and text appear in a preview on the right

Timetable bulk editing

A new user interface to allow you to update the timetable in bulk. Move sessions, adjust tutors, change rooms and more, even if your timetable has hundreds of sessions.

Copy to clipboard

To make it easier to export small bits of data from onCourse as part of your daily work, onCourse can now export directly to the clipboard. Use the 'share' feature as normal, but select "copy to clipboard" once you've chosen the export format. Typically one of the Excel formats is what you want.

You can even create your own formats, so you could copy a class and get an entirely formatted message block including URLs and any other data you can imagine.

Collision detection

Collision detection is back and better than ever. It is faster and still detects any collisions between tutor and room timetables as well as unavailability rules.

Collision detection will warn you when there are any scheduling clashes while making classes
